BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Red Stick Retail Shop will be open until December 17 to provide those recovering from the flood with new clothing for children.
"It's a really good experience, especially if you have been affected by the flood and if you don't have any clothes for your kids," said Asia Raby with Urban League Red Stick, during the last opening of the shop.
The Red Stick Retail Shop is exclusively for flood victims and it has opened several times since August, providing clothing for anyone affected. The charity store reopened December 12 to provide kids clothing for Christmas.
The store is located in Cortana Mall and is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The clothing are available in the following age groups:
- 3 months
- 6 months
- 9 months
- 12 months
- 24 months
- 2T 3T 4T 5T
- 5, 6 and 7
The additional items available include:
- Kids pillows (Olaf)
- 100 play pens
Anyone who suffered from flood damage is welcome to go to the shop, but must have a FEMA letter (approved or denied) and some form of photo identification.
The merchandise is being provided by K.I.D.S/Fashion Delivers, a national charity.
This will be the fifth time the store has opened its doors to flood victims. The first event was by appointment only and served about 1,000 families.
